We did an interview with the artist over a cup of coffee about this latest release, here’s what they had to say!
Tell us about your track
“psyche making” has an energetic beat with catchy vocal hooks, guaranteed to be stuck in the listener’s heads. I was inspired by the experimental hyperpop scene, and I tried to combine some of its elements with hip-hop, giving the song a trap-like feel. Marked with glitchy synths and robotic vocals, it captures the listener’s attention. This song ignores the typical structure of music in this genre and delivers something unique, making interesting use of real voice notes as well, thus giving the listener a story. It’s a banger, but with a meaning to it. The main premise of this track is getting over the fear of being alone by stopping getting into talking stages continuously with different people. It tries to capture the feeling of figuring your shit out and realizing that you don’t need someone else to place your worth on. So in a way, you’re “making your psyche”. I believe this is something a lot of people relate to and I myself, found solace in making this song. I’m sending a message with this song, but with very hard beats.
Tell us your inspiration behind this track
The main beat just came up while I was messing around my DAW, trying to get a glitchy sound. I was hooked and finished the whole instrumental in one sitting. While writing lyrics, I tend to keep them really personal and vulnerable with a context relevant to my present life. I was in a phase where I kept having failed talking stages, and it was honestly driving me crazy. That’s when I decided to try to focus on myself, and writing this song somehow really helped me in the process. I’m doing better these days.
How long did it take to record the track album EP ?
About 3 weeks with breaks for college exams and tests in between.
What is the meaning behind the lyrics?
The lyrics narrate a story of my love life over the past year. I had this tendency to hold on to romnantic interests, not because I genuinely liked them, but because I had a fear of being alone. The lyrics express how I kept messing around for a long time and it obviously never led to anything but hurt for all parties involved. I try to capture the feeling of taking a leap of faith and get over the fear of being lonely by stopping the talking stages and building myself instead. That’s where the song title “psyche making” makes sense.
What brings next after this release?
I’m a fresher in college and I’ve been meeting a lot of talented musicians here that I want to work with in the near future. Some of them are very experienced and ahead in their career, so I’m going to try to get their guidance while I continue to make songs based on my personal stories. I’m going to continue to make the brand around my artist alias stronger too.
